Talk to Your Doctor Before Breastfeeding If You Take Paxil

January 7, 2012

Paxil (paroxetine) is a dangerous drug that may be transferred to your baby if you’re not careful. While many Paxil patients are aware of the risk of taking Paxil during pregnancy, some don’t realize that Paxil may be transferred to your newborn through breast milk. Babies who are born premature or show signs of hepatic immunity are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects associated with postnatal paroxetine exposure.


The dangers associated with Paxil (paroxetine) are both numerous and serious. A 2010 Swedish study, for instance, confirmed previous research when it concluded that pregnant women who used Paxil during pregnancy revealed a measurable association between Paxil ingestion and infant cardiovascular birth defects.
